Lizi's Sensational Stuffed Peppers

This fuss-free recipe is a go-to for veggies. A nourishing dinner that’s bursting with colour, whilst providing at least two of your five-a-day, these stuffed peppers come with an extra hit of protein thanks to the crunchy high protein granola topping.

Red bell peppers provide a dose of vitamin C, while the wholegrain couscous gives this dish a fibre hit. Lastly, the vibrant colour of the tomato sauce comes from the plant chemical lycopene. All of these nutritious ingredients may contribute to supporting a healthy heart.

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 170°C. While that heats up, cut the peppers in half, taking out the seeds and any white bits.

Step 4
Cover and leave to sit for 5-10 minutes.
Step 5
Once the couscous is cooked, fluff up with a fork. Combine couscous with chopped sundried tomatoes, chopped spinach and lemon juice.
Step 6
Add a splash of oil to the couscous to lightly coat.
Step 7
Take peppers out of the oven and fill them with the couscous mixture.
Step 8
In a bowl, combine the passata, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Add to the base of the dish, filling the areas surrounding the peppers. Bake for a further 25 minutes.
Step 9
Remove from the oven and top each pepper with feta and Lizi’s High Protein Granola. Place under the grill for the 2-3 minutes or until the feta is golden.
Step 10
Serve topped with a few leaves of fresh parsley and a squeeze of lemon.
